about me is different than what i actually am what i believe. that's where the difference came. what the president has been saying and reality are pretty far apart. >> before that hannity interview aired mr. romney running mate paul ryan and trace atkins all rallied where he trailed by 3 and a half points in the real clear politics average of polls. the campaign says 10,000 people showed up to see the gop nominee for the first time since his strong debate debut. the president went to wisconsin yesterday afternoon where he is up 7 and a half in the polls. he drew about 30,000 folks from the university wisconsin in madison and started trying out new lines related to things romney said on wednesday. >> when he was asked what he would do he said he would eliminate funding for public

some questions that i posed i think americans across the country wanted to have answered. it was not a big gotcha night coming from the moderator but instead the president and i to go toe-to-toe on important issues people care about. i thought it was a helpful night. in the final analysis people will decide what kind of america they want. >> charles krauthammer is giving his analysis they got to see governor romney but wednesday offering a different view of him. >> romney had the highest negatives at this stage of the campaign in any challenger in three decades. they work only up to until they collide with reality. reality is a debate where you see the real guy for the first time and you get this remarkable
reaction in the cbs poll 56 percent of respondents said their opinion of romney had risen. their opinion of romney had been that he is a rapacious capitalist gecko that cares for nobody except himself and money. they see a reasonable guy tough and respectful and they realize all of the ads they have seen are false. the point that you brought up where you said it was the best line romney had about he's the guy who wants to raise taxes on the middle class and reduce taxes on the rich, romney took the beginning of that debate and attacked each of the points and demolished them. all of that came from negative advertising. i think what he did last night is he dissolved $150 million of negative ads and turned themmed to dust. the candidates will face off
